Y Talk: Tuckey Town Challenge by Michelle Bell
The Tuckey Companies have been partnering with us for six years to present lots of fun, free family events through our Healthy Family Home Series. And I am super excited about the next event we are holding for the Carlisle community!
The Tuckey Town Challenge is designed to get families moving, interacting in a variety of ways and having fun during their time at home. And it also helps to support our local businesses! We are asking families to post videos or photos as they complete challenges in six different categories: Keep It Local, Let’s Get Physical, Entertain Us, The Great Outdoors, Quarantine Creations and Be a Good Neighbor.
We have offered a few suggestions of activities for each category here, but really the ideas are limitless. We just ask you to remember that this is a family challenge, so please keep all posts G-rated.
We created a Facebook event page where you post your videos or photos. Please have the same person post each time for your family so it is easier to track. Every family that completes at least 10 challenges—and at least one in each category—will be entered for a chance to win one of five $100 gift cards to local businesses!
If you go to the Facebook event page and click the “Discussion” tab (to the right of the “About” tab), you will see the entries already posted including my family’s epic lip sync video that my husband posted. For those of you that know me, this is so far out of my comfort zone. But we had a lot of fun creating it and it has provided laughs for us and many of our family and friends.
So make this most of this unexpected time together and create memories that will last a lifetime. And then share those memories with us so we can all see the good that is happening during this time of uncertainty.
